Bruce Quisno recently joined HPM as our newest Senior Program Development Manager, positioning our company for expansion in new markets while also bolstering our capabilities in planning and design management. In his new role, Bruce will provide strategic leadership and direction for new and developing client engagements while serving as a key component between business development and the operational phases of an assignment.
A registered architect with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) with more than 35 years of experience in design and construction, Bruce has a proven track record in assembling winning teams on major corporate capital programs across the U.S. totaling more than 40 million square feet. Much of that success occurred during his two-decade career as Vice President of Construction at Macy’s, where he managed projects for Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s Southeast, South Central and Midwest regions. Some of his notable achievements included leading design and construction efforts for new stores in both Hawaii (Bloomingdale’s) and Puerto Rico (Macy’s), as well as supervising the design and construction of a 2.2 million-square-foot fulfillment center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Bruce most recently served as Vice President of Retail at CR architecture + design in Cincinnati, where he directed strategy and execution for the firm’s national retail teams. In addition to his extensive client-side experience, he is also recognized within the industry for his contributions as an Advisory Board member of the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), which included serving as past chairman for the 2011 ICSC CenterBuild Conference in Arizona.
“Bruce’s diverse background, deep connections in the industry, and ability to see through the lens of the owner make him an extremely valuable addition to our leadership team,” said Greg Ellis, HPM Vice President of Program Development. “His can-do personality and passion for cultivating strong client relationships have served him well throughout his career, and those traits will play an integral role moving forward as HPM prepares to enter new markets and expand our service offerings. We look forward to seeing Bruce apply his strategic leadership skills as he helps guide us into the next chapter of our growth story.”
“I’m thrilled to join the team at HPM and look forward to building upon its strong foundation of integrity and creative, client-focused solutions. My background and prior experience provide key advantages for building holistic strategies that are responsive to the needs of owners and help generate meaningful results. Now more than ever, program managers must rise to meet the emerging challenges in our industry while identifying new opportunities to add value for clients. I’m grateful for the firm’s confidence and look forward to hitting the ground running.”Bruce Quisno
